I have tried everything with SeaMonkey Mail and Thunderbird,two Outlook Express clones. But no matter what I try, nothing works. I cannot get that email up and running. And whatever information about my http. or POP server that I type in does not make any difference. As it still does not work. Someone said it is not Outlook Express or it's clones fault that I cannot understand http. or POP. But it is the fault of whoever invented that system. Because that system does not work, as even when you do type in the right information,it just does not accept it. And I have read that you only get an http. or POP server address on paid Yahoo email not the free version. So if that is true, then Yahoo Mail won't work on Outlook Express or other email clients like it,if you are using the free version. Outlook Express and clones is-THE EMAIL THAT NOBODY CAN USE. And so no matter how hard you try, you just won't win. You won't be able to use it. But on a happier note here is what you CAN use. Windows Live Messenger and Aim Messenger are easy to use and you can do live video and email text chat. Instantbird is an easy to use email text messenger that is based on Pidgin but is easier to use than Pidgin. You cannot do voice chat on Instantbird, but you can connect multiple email accounts,Aim,Windows Live,Google,Yahoo and others. And send and receive live email text messages to contacts on different networks. As well as send and receive offline email text messages. Pidgin is difficult to use. Although the Linux version of Pidgin works better than the Windows version. I don't know why. On the Pidgin website it says that Pidgin only supports voice chat on Google Talk. But I found that I could only do voice and video chat on the Linux version of Pidgin to Google Talk. But on the Windows version of Pidgin you cannot do voice or video chat to contacts on Google Talk. I think that despite the website saying that you can do voice and video chat on Windows Pidgin,you can't. As there is either no voice or video chat plug in to make calls to Google Talk, or it is not working on Windows. But as I have tried this on other computers,it seems that you can only do voice and video chat to Google Talk on Linux Pidgin, not Windows Pidgin. As it worked on Linux Mint, but not on Windows. Also Linux Pidgin is different and easier to use than Windows pidgin. And Linux Pidgin works, but Windows Pidgin,does not work well at all. So Pidgin fine on Linux but not on Windows. So Windows users are better off using Instantbird which is great for Windows, and also, Nimbuzz. Nimbuzz is an email text messenger like Instant bird but you can do voice calls to contacts on Google Talk Windows Live and Nimbuzz contacts. But not video chat and Nimbuzz supports Facebook and many other networks. Although you can only do voice chat to contacts on the three that I mentioned. But you can still do email text messaging to contacts on all of the other networks it supports. And then you have got Aim,or ICQ. And you can sign into ICQ with your Aol or Aim account, and chat to contacts on Aim from there. Aim and ICQ are exactly the same as one another. Maybe they were the same company at one time. Because it is interesting that you can sign into ICQ with your Aim account. And that you don't have to have an ICQ account,although you can if you wish. Aim and ICQ are both good choices but ICQ is lighter on the system. That is it uses less files than Aim. But if you like both you can install Aim and ICQ side by side each other on your computer. Both are good choices for any version of Windows,Windows XP,Windows Vista and Windows 7. And then there is of course Google Talk. There is the desktop messenger that does voice chat only. And the video plug in for voice and video chat,that works in most web browsers. Although, the video plug in has not worked for several months now, but the voice chat does. And if you go onto Meebo a web based messenger, you can do video chat to contacts on Google talk from there. I do. And yes,I did try Skype but that did not work.When Skype tested my computer it said my Internet connection was good. But my computer was too slow to make video calls. I have a Netbook,but what they said was rubbish. As I have made video calls with,Aim,ICQ,Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk. And all of them work. And on Skype you can only make video calls to people with a Skype account. So that is no good to me anyway.And I think that Skype is not user friendly, and very commercial. So Aim,ICQ,Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk are the best to use. And then you have got normal email. Which is Aol Mail,Hotmail,G.Mail and many others. Where you can send and receive emails anywhere. So why use Outlook Express and clones. Which is THE EMAIL THAT NOBODY CAN USE. When you have all of these other programs. Which are-THE EMAIL THAT EVERYBODY CAN USE. And can offer you so much more. And the main thing is that you can use them. You cannot use Outlook express and it's clones. Andrea Borman.
